B-2 Bomber: Assessment of DOD's Response to Mandated Certifications and
Reports (Letter Report, 11/03/93, GAO/NSIAD-94-75).

The Air Force is restricted from using about $2.3 billion in recent
appropriations to procure B-2 aircraft until (1) it gives Congress
certifications and reports on the B-2 bomber program and (2) a law is
passed authorizing release of the funds.  In October 1993, the Secretary
of Defense certified that 28 legislative requirements associated with
B-2 performance, fiscal controls and quality practices, and submission
of a cost report had been met.  The Pentagon gave GAO evidence that the
requirements involving B-2 performance and fiscal controls and quality
practices had been met. The requirement concerning submission of a cost
report, however, has not been met.
